New Delhi, Mar 24 (ANI): The Students Islamic Organisation of India (SIOI), a forum of Muslim students on Wednesday sought judicial probe in the high profile Batla House encounter that took place in New Delhi in September 2008, in which the Delhi Police killed two suspected Indian Mujahideen militants and also lost one of its ace inspectors.

Over hundreds of SIOI activists took out a rally through the streets in the vicinity of Jamia Millia Islamia University that adjoins Batla House terming the shootout as fake.

"We believe that the encounter is fake, this is a cold-blooded murder and we believe that these both (killed suspected militants) were killed before bringing to the site of shootout. The Delhi Police staged this entire drama," said SIOI National Secretary Shahnawaz Ali Raihan.

"We demand that there should be impartial probe by a sitting judge of the Supreme Court and the truth should come before us," Raihan added.

The post-mortem reports of the two suspected militants killed in the encounter, obtained by a Jamia university student, have raised many questions.

The four-page autopsy reports of the suspects reveal that they had suffered injuries by a blunt object apart from gunshot wounds.

Two suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists who were killed were identified as Atif Amin and Mohd Sajid. Two other IM suspects Mohd Saif and Zeeshan were arrested from the Batla House area. (ANI)
